Our "Spring Break" destination this year was Vieques, Puerto Rico. Planning for the trip began back in late July last year after a weekend spent with the Mathern's. I think we may have actually invited ourselves along on their annual trip to the island (which we consider the Mathern's Island since they own land there).

March 11th, was our first official beach day. After getting provisions at the grocery store, we got in about 5 hours at Orchid beach (aka Playa La Plata). The soft sugar sand was amazing and the sound of the surf (on the Caribbean side of the island) was calm and relaxing. The mixed clouds kept us from getting very toasted, much to the disappointment of Denise & me. Lance and Steve got in some snorkeling and spotted a stingray in between time on the sand.
